, this is highway 17, the main corridor between santa cruz and the south bay. we saw law enforcement from the santa cruz area along with many other mourners head back over the hill about an hour and a half ago. the patrol cars had their lights on, but the highway was not shut down like it was during today's procession. the service for the two fallen police officers, lauren "butch" baker and elizabeth butler ended at about 3:00 p.m. law enforcement who showed up from across the continent lined up to pay their final respects. we saw officers from as far away as canada. the royal canadian mountain police were there along with numerous other agencies. reno and las vegas police to name a few more. all of those officers are now headed to their respective cities. tens of thousands heading home after the emotional service. to give you some idea of the number of law enforcement who attended, the procession into san jose today was two miles long. from highway 17, hundreds of emergency vehicles made their way into the south bay. they had free rein of the highways, as normal traffic was shut down. while hundre

and senate, because what is critical here, since sequester is the law of the land, all of these bills have the level they are at in the continuing resolution that will be subject to sequester. i will not repeat again devastate education, health care, air traffic control, the food and safety inspectors, etc.. that is why i think there has to be an adjustment. >> perhaps we should have put you in the joint selection committee. i am pleased that you can come together and find that the agreement. i have never gone to vote on a labor of hhs bill. i would have said the process was so problematic that agreement was near impossible and i might serve another two years and not see that process, but to hear even with these challenging funding levels set by sequestration that in your experience you are able to look forward and say we really are cord to be able to come to an agreement. i can tell you that my summer will be a better summer if it is filled with appropriation bills that have been reported out of the appropriations committee. >> i want to clarify, i did not think chairman rogers or myself

of the senate law enforcement caucus today to hear testimony from kentucky and delaware about the justice reinvestment initiative. we flew some people in. unfortunately the inclim ate weather canceled it. it's a place where bipartisan bills at the state level have led with federal partnership to the critical catalytic investments in improving criminal justice systems. the bulletproof partnership is something -- i had a police officer from dover, delaware, a couple months ago, was shot twice close range in the chest and survived. the county where i used to serve, their lives were saved. we should be re-authorizing this program. i look forward working with you on that. last question if i could, in the same vein. the victims of child abuse act and the child advocacy centers that it funds, i think are an enormous resource for law enforcement and prevent the revictimization by children who were traumatized to be interviewed once. it has all the relevant folks there and present. the one i visited, a children's hospital in new cassel county, the resource for our community and our law enforcement
